National Night Out: A Salute to Those Who Keep Our Communities Safe ~ Op-Ed By Bill Wennhold

Valley Springs, CA...Sometimes we take for granted the blessing we have here in Calaveras County. It is important to remember that the health and well-being of a community is up to all of us. Creating safe and thriving neighborhoods for our families is not an individual enterprise. It is important to be reminded of how many different agencies work with ordinary citizens to maintain the safety of our communities throughout Calaveras County.





That is why, as a 39-year public safety servant, I support the idea behind National Night Out. For 34 years, the first Tuesday in August has been dedicated to building relationships with neighbors and developing a better understanding of our public safety agencies. That not only includes police officers and sheriffs’ deputies who respond to calls for service, firefighters who respond to the alarm, EMTs and paramedics on ambulances there in our times of medical crisis, and the staff who work at hospitals like Mark Twain Medical Center in San Andreas.

What we all have in common is the responsibility to respond to situations where life and death can hinge on a few short seconds. Whether in the emergency room or ambulance, or at a fire or accident scene, these men and women play a vital role in protecting our neighborhoods and creating a valuable sense of security and well-being for all of us. The better we understand that role and how these jobs are carried, the safer our communities will be.

National Night Out is a series of observances and activities, stretching from coast to coast, that means something unique to every community. While wildfires have threatened the safety and protection of our community before, we have always come together, working side-by-side and leaning on the kindness and compassion of neighbors to get through challenges.

This year’s National Night Out observance will include a gathering on Tuesday, August 1, at Terrace Plaza shopping center in Valley Springs. Dignity Health, through its affiliation with Mark Twain Medical Center, is helping to sponsor the event.

Mark Twain Medical Center’s support reflects recognition of the importance that National Night Out has in promoting the partnerships that exist between our communities and public safety officials and in nurturing an even stronger sense of neighborhood involvement. One of the key reasons we live in a place like Calaveras County is the small-town atmosphere and culture of looking out for one another. That sense of neighborhood safety and security should never be taken for granted.

The August 1 event in Valley Springs is a good opportunity for us to show appreciation for those who work in public safety and help improve the health, productivity and security of our neighborhoods in Calaveras County.

Bill Wennhold


Event occurs on 08/01/2017 from 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM.
